Fortunately, this tournament was in November, not in December.  On 26 December, a huge earthquake, the most world's powerful in 40 years, struck near Indonesia and caused devastating tsunamis.  These devastated much of the coastal areas of southern Asia, including Phuket.  Over one hundred thousand were killed.  The team's hotel was right on the beach, which would not have been a good place to be.
